Megaprojects and the Economic Downturn
June 13th, 2008
Sure, this video is a record of an event that happened over a month ago. But it has a panel discussion with one candidate for City Council (Brad Lander) and another for mayor (William Thompson). Also, Robert Lieber, the deputy mayor for economic development, gives the introduction.
Convened by the Center for New York City Affairs at the New School and moderated by Greg David, the editor of Crain’s, the event discusses the viability of New York’s continued growth in a slowing economy. The video – posted this week on Fora TV, a YouTube for wonks – clocks in at nearly two hours, but is broken into chapters that you can browse through.
If you’re looking for an exhaustive report on the event, Norman Oder, Atlantic Yards watchdog-extraordinaire, has got you covered.By Mike Muller on June 13, 2008, 12:15 pm
